To boycot movies feels stupid, but in the context "honor Tel Aviv and its centenary celebrations" is understandable. This makes the remark that Tel Aviv was built on Palestinian villages also relevant. How can I simply honor something that next to joy also caused so much suffering. I do not buy "made in Israel" if I can easily avoid it but I do want to watch Israeli movies like "See If I'm Smiling" (Lir?ot Im Ani Mehayechet). I also read Haaretz and listen to Bibi's UN speach, because dialogue and open information is important.
